The occassion of Independence Day in Sri Lanka prompts bloggers to reflect where the country stands, and where it's headed.

    It is only independence for some. It is still oppression for some. The country would have been economically and politically in a better position had there been no independence eg. Hongkong. Most educated poeple are migrating out of the country – because they do not believe in independence. Nothing has been acheived, in fact the country has degenerated by the way it is ruled.
